    Hi Greg, have you any evidence that there is an inverse correlation between executive compensation and value creation (to be expected) from a listed company? I quickly read this article from WSJ (JULY 27, 2010, Oracle’s Ellison: Pay King, Leads WSJ List of Top-Paid CEOs of the Decade; Diller, Irani, Jobs Rank High) + the experience of W. Buffett seems to indicate that maybe and index that weights more the company whose Executive compensation / Enterprise Value is lower could be a better strategy!
